Resolving conflict fairly 2
Melichar, Jan and Melicharova, Margaret (2000) Saying no to violence - children and peace, Peace Pledge Union.
This casts a critical look at the way we teach children to accept violence as natural and inevitable. It suggests alternative strategies for bringing up children not only to act non-violently but to think non violently. Saying no to violence has a wealth of suggestions for parents and teachers of young children including curriculum-based lesson plans, including many for age 7 to 11.
